Dave took Jacob to the Bonodori festival in Negishi and came back with these...

Never mess with a boy and his banana...

I put a banana in a mesh feeder this morning and Jacob had a field day with it. Boy does he love his bananas. I tired to take it away and he freaked. haha kind of funny!

Bonodori Festival...

Jacob and I went to the Bonodori festival with my friend Kayoko and her mother. We had such a great time experiencing the Japanese culture. Kayoko got dressed up in her summer kimono known as a Yukata and Jacob and I were dressed in a jacket known as a Happi. Kayoko's mother called Jacob the mascot of the festival because everyone wanted to touch him or tell us how cute he was. I was so happy that everyone thought I had a cute kid ( of course I already knew this ). haha Here is a little info on the festival that we went to.

Bonodori Festival

Obon (お盆?) or just Bon (盆?), also referred to as "Day of the Dead,"[1] is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. Also called the Feast of Lanterns, it has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.

Play time with daddy...

In this photo you can see that Jacob would rather be watching sponge bob than playing peek-A-Boo with daddy.

Thanks Cait...

Thank you so much Cait for the Ergo baby carrier for Jacob. He is just now getting to the age where I can use it. He liked it so much tonight that he fell asleep in it. It is really comfy and I know it will be used a ton!!! Thanks again.

Smash...Ooops I mean All American Rejects...


I went to the free All American Rejects concert with my buddies while Dave had daddy duty. We had a great time and took lots of goofy pics. My friend, Tya is 9 months pregnant and her hubby is not home so we took a chair for her so she could keep that baby in! Here they are...
